DepEd Eyes 130 Episodes Of TV Lectures Per Week
DepEd EYES 130 EPISODES WEEKLY – The Department of Education planned to air around 130 lecture episodes per week as part of their distance learning program.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the education system in the Philippines had to make some serious adjustments. However, because a large percentage of students have no access to a stable internet connection, DepEd opted for a compromise in the form of modules and TV lectures.
According to an article from Inquirer, DepEd Director Abram Abanil said each lecture episode would be around 20 minutes long. Furthermore, there would also be a 5-minute break in between them.
Additionally, these episodes would start early at around 7:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. As per the article, he said:
By October 5, the target is to be able to produce 130 episodes per week. These 130 episodes cover only the major subject areas under the most essential learning competencies
Apparently, there was supposed to be 220 subject areas. However, DepEd admitted that they won’t be able to produce that volume of content. As such, Abanil said they only targeted major subjects for the upcoming October 5 classes.
Currently, DepEd’s partner channels composed of IBC 13, PTV4, Solar TV, Planet Cable, The Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association, and Cignal TV among others.
Along with this, the DepEd director said they would begin a trial run for the programs on September 21 to 25 to practice the logistics of airing the programs on TV.
